‘He seeth, who so seeth that by matter alone are all acts enacted1; seeth that likewise ātma is not actor.’
Whoso sees —that all actions proceed from the agency of matter in the manner previously averred in:
‘For creating effect and instruments, matter is said to be the cause’ (Gi: XIII-20); and sees that the soul being one of intelligence is not the actor; and therefore sees, that it is ignorance in the shape of karma, that brings about (1) the associating with matter, (2) the condition of informing2 it, and (3) the experiencing of joys and griefs occasioned thereby, —such a man— sees ātma in its true light.
